    quote Serebii
    PokéWood is to be called PokéStar Studios
    Shizui's US name is Marlon
    Virbank City was also confirmed as the US name for Tachiwaki City, reflecting the leaked Dub Episode Title earlier this month.
    Achroma is known as Corless.
    We already know most of these but I thought it was best to make a new thread than hijack another.

    PokéStar Studios is catchy, :3

when bw2 was announced i tried really hard not learn any of the japanese names for stuff
because when black and white first came out i learned ALL of the japanese names.
i still haven't totally adjusted to the engllish names, and every once in a while i can't remember either versions of the names.

so i'm totally fine with marlon and colress,
but i'm glad they switched pokewood to pokestar studios,
it makes it sound more modern

Oh hell, I would've preferred Corless over Colress. Idk, just sounds a tad stranger to me.
Still in want of Achroma though.

    I do prefer Achroma but at least Colress runs off the tongue better than Corless.

Works for me, it's sounds less 'obvious' and better in general, sounds a bit more like an actual name too.

14:04 The English language site has revealed the trainer name of Colress rather than Corless for the character of Achroma, showing a different spelling to the name than seen in the press pack last month
Eh. Achroma's still better.

They're ruining the awesomeness of the game with every bit of news lately.
You seem rather dramatic over just a few minor changes. What bits of news do you mean, specifically?

You're right. Back in February/March, discussion and speculation was all the rage. Now news is taking it all over, and discussion threads are over with some people owning the game.

But the good thing is that some people can't wait to see what it's like.

That's...not what I meant at all, Castlewars. I was just talking about some of the stupid names and features that they keep announcing are in the game. It leaves us tons to discuss; I just wish it was more of "woah that's an awesome feature!!" instead of "yeah the game could do without that..."
quote Dragoon
If people are letting the name of things get in the way of their enjoyment, why have you been playing Pokémon at all? 90% of all localisation is disappointing names. It's always been that way with the series.
The localized names and all are just a small part. I actually like a lot of the names. xD But some of the new features and stuff are just..stupid. D:

    Discussion threads are never over. Not everyone has the game and those who do will still post to discuss. If you made some threads you'd see that there's plenty to discuss.
